video file via NAS #vlc #linux #windows 

Got a couple video files stored on a NAS, that I can play with VLC when accessing them from several different machines running Win10.
But when I try to play those files with VLC from my machine running Arch:
VLC reports that it could not open the file,
throws error "Invalid argument"
and throws "Invalid NAL unit size (XYZ > 1950)" where XYZ differs per file.

Files play with no issue when copied to local harddrive.

Any suggestions?

Boosts appreciated.
